Mesut Ozil will not play for Germany against England when the two sides meet in a tomorrow night.
Two sides meet in Dortmund for a friendly, but according to coach Jogi Low the 28 year old will not be selected.
“[Among] those who will not play tomorrow are Ozil, who has some muscle problems,” he said.
The Arsenal man was left out of the squad for the trip to West Brom last Saturday, and has barely featured in recent weeks because of a bout of illness and other small injury complaints.
It will be much more instructive to see if he is part of the squad for a World Cup qualifier on Sunday, when the World Champions travel to Azerbaijan.
Wednesday’s game against England will be a farewell to the German national side for Lukas Podolski. The former Arsenal forward will win his 130th and final cap, as well as captaining the side on the night.
He quit international football in 2016, but has come back for one final match and a chance to say a proper goodbye to fans.
Scoring a couple of traditional Podolski rockets would be a good way to go out.
